Reminds me of the time back in School when friends bragged about they finish the book within hours and me thinking in my head "But I don't miss any details."

And to think that some people think paying less for teachers is justified as they work less number of hours on paper.

I love the TED radio hour but as a listener with cochlear implants, I found the guest audio to be so bad I had to skip this episode. I know a lot of work goes into each episode, but anything you can do to enhance audio quality would be appreciated.

Thank you for adding perspective for each issue. The comparison of international law's take on child soldiers vs the America's take on Yong gang members makes so much sense!
